I see this sort of thing all the time, from a "modern" UNIX telnet
client to several different NetBSD telnet daemons.  I suspect it's a
timing issue of when local linemode gets turned on--it acts as if a line
or two from the remote side is getting discarded.  I also miss lines on
occasion when entering or exiting line-at-a-time editing (e.g. typing to
my CBREAK-mode tcsh, then running the 'ed' editor, then exiting and
returning to tcsh ).
